Limestone Quarry. Bedford, Indiana, 1933.

Many organizations and individuals in the United States and Europe are now familiar with the name, Charles W. Cushman. Cushman graduated from Indiana University in 1917 and his color photographs dating from 1938 through 1969 have been widely viewed and utilized in documentaries, books, newspapers, magazines & websites across two continents. However, most people are completely unaware that Cushman was also shooting high-quality black and white images well before 1938 through the early 1940s.

This exhibit highlights some of Cushman’s finest black and white images as well as examples of the notes he kept, other documents, and camera equipment.

We invite you to stop by the Archives (Wells Library E460) through September 30, 2011 to view this exhibit.
